Best of both worlds (Die cutting and Quilling)

While shopping for my Cheery Lynn Design dies, I came across some wonderful dies for quilling.  It has always been difficult to get the right color precut quilling paper and these dies are able to cut the paper effortlessly (no more uneven paper).  Anyway, this gives me an idea to combine die cut and quilling in my card for this week Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #93 Fun with Letters and Simon Says Stamp Blog Monday Challenge - Make the Cut

For this card, I used quilling to enhance the die cuts and create other elements such as the sun ray and the background heart shapes.   
I used Wedding Vows  die to cut the couple.  I added some textures to create the clothing.  As both the paper and my couple die cut were white, I cut a pink heart from the Two of hearts die set and layered it behind the heads.
To emphasize the word LOVE (die cut from Garden of love die), I used different shapes of red/pinks to filled up the die cut.   Similarly, I added other quilled elements to the flowers.  The butterflies are cut from Small Exotic Butterflies and Mini Dimensional Butterflies sets.
The flowers on to of the poetry are added with quilled flower stamens.   
I cut three layered of different sizes inverted scalloped circles to form the core of the sun while the rays are quilled paper.

This has been another fun project and I was able to complete it on a shorter timeframe by using the die cuts. Thank you for stopping by.
